Mexico has a culture appreciated most heartily through the stomach! There's nothing better than having Mexican food straight off the pan, in the middle of Mexico City's nooks and crannies.
Fill up with the city's best offerings as the tour starts with a meeting at Amigo Zocalo, a downtown hotspot where the tour guide and fellow food lovers will converge. First on the list are tacos and quesadillas. A special treat for vegetarians come in form of a huitlacoche quesadilla (or corn smut quesadilla) infused with squash bottom. Meat lovers will enjoy the variety of juicy pork or beef meat cuts.
La Merced District will not only feed you mouth-watering enchiladas and grilled shrimps, but the whole area will take you to an olden era as these historical buildings were renovated to preserve their elaborate facade detailing. Munch on stuffed poblano chiles and grilled skirt steaks as you take on the festive and colourful of the structures.

Last and the best chill-out spot, the Restaurante Cafe de Tacuba will be the final station of food tasting. The restaurant's charming interiors and cosy arches will soothe and let you relax. Try their famous chocolate beverages to cap your 5-hour food tour.
So book your Mexico City Food Walking Tour, well in advance while visiting the city.
